Half alive, half dead room
 
I’m preparing to have a studio built. The tracking room will be 30X40, a 1,200 sq ft Rectangle/Almost square shaped room. I want to panel it to where It doesn’t sound quite dead, but it doesn’t sound cacophonous either. I’d like to coax out a nice room sound for mainly my drums, (as vocals have their own iso box and guitars will likely be recorded there too) with the option of using free standing panels for those times I need a more dead sound.

I’ll likely be working with Owens paneling, and I’m not quite sure how to go about making a room sound pleasant as I’m not very experienced with this type of thing. Any suggestions?

Get Master Book of Acoustics by Everest and Holmnn. Read at least the chapters regarding reverberation. It is way too much to answer properly in one or even dozens of posts.

Why does the studio have no ceiling? :lol:
